In this worksheet, we will be multiplying decimal numbers.

__Examples__

When multiplying decimal numbers, you adjust the decimal number by multiplying it by 10 or 100 to convert it into a whole number. Then you carry out the multiplication. Finally you re-adjust your answer by dividing by 10 or 100 to convert them back into decimals.

**7.35 × 31**

Multiply 7.35 by 100 to get 735.

Work out 735 x 31 = 22785

Divide this by 100 to get the answer **227.85**

**2.7 × 41.2 **

Multiply 2.7 by 10 to get 27 and 41.2 by 10 get 412

Work out 27 x 412 = 11124

Divide this by 10 x 10 = 100 to get the answer **111.24**
